This is the respect thread for Emperor Aquaman and his appearances during the period the DC Universe was altered to the Flashpoint timeline. Focusing on his feats and fights.
Emperor Aquaman's "profile", a more militaristic version of the character.
Aquaman's warrior training since childhood, acknowledgment as the most powerful Atlantean ever and a scene of him leading the Atlantean armies against an underwater race.
The location of Atlantis and the world reaching effects of the war between Atlantis and Themyscira
Now on to the actual feats.
First he jumps on the ship and stabs Deathstroke taking him out of the fight in one move
The same scene (showing Super Leaping, Reflexes and Fighting Skills)
Casually kills Machiste with his own weapon (showing Reflexes and Skill)
Kills Scavenger, the Superboy villain after kicking Clayface, dodging point blank blasts (showing Agility, Leaping, Strength and Fighting Skills)
Kills Clayface by taking him deep in the ocean where the pressure is to much even for a metahuman (showing Super Swimming Speed and Super Durability)
Finally departs leaving Deathstroke and his Crew devastated.
Aquaman arrives and saves WW (showing Super Swimming Speed, Super Strength and Fighting Skills)
Tanks WW's enraged punch while still trying to achieve peace (Super Durability)
Tanks WW's sword slice,which leaves a characteristic scar and leaves when the Amazons sacrifice their island (Super Durability)
Wonder Woman arrives in Aquaman's command ship and the battle begins (showing Super Strength, Reflexes and Fighting Skills)
After a brief pause the fight continues due to the real conspirators manipulations, with Aquaman having a definite advantage underwater, forcing Wonder Woman to run for her life (showing Super Strength, Super Durability, Reflexes and Fighting Skills)
Aquaman decides to pursue WW instead of trying to disarm the potentially Earth shattering weapon. He leaps to a near invisible plane, piercing it and casually disposing the Amazon pilot (showing Super Leaping, the Trident's Durability and Skills as a pilot)
The fight begins again on New Themyscira, and Aquaman gains the advantage nearly succeeding to blind WW until the fight is interrupted by Captain Thunder, which save's WW (showing Super Strength, Fighting Speed and Fighting Skills)
The fight resumes again and it's the last part which ends with AQ and WW locked in combat (AQ showing Super Strength and Fighting Skills)
Aquaman grabs Flash before he can help Billy Batson (showing Reflexes and Reaction Time)
Superman arrives and charges at AQ and WW. They tank the hit and fight back. After that the Atlantean device detonates while they are still locked in combat (AQ showing Super Durability and Super Strength)
After manipulating him (with the help of Mera) into believing they are allies (showing Strategic, Diplomatic and Leadership Skills as well as a cunning Intellect)
Aquaman use the device for the first time, leveling part of Europe
The power source of the device is revealed
After the Amazon / Atlantean conspirators reveal their plan, Vulko detonates the device, despite Aquaman trying to prevent it.
And that's it for Emperor Aquaman of the Flashpoint period, one of the most bad@ss DC characters in a long time (along with regular Aquaman of course).
This character is a villain, nearly completely unsympathetic and responsible for millions of deaths (portrayed in the "small" images due to the violent content) and eventually the total destruction of the planet, a completely opposite direction of where the character usually stands. Nevertheless Emperor Aquaman is a powerhouse and this thread is dedicated to the ridiculous amount of bad@ssery he brought during the time the DC Universe was turned to Flashpoint Universe.
King Emperor Aquaman!
